We can’t believe it is the end of our first half term already!
The children are mostly coming in on their own with no tears now which is fantastic! They are mostly settled, making new friendships and have learned our routines and expectations. Thankyou for all of your support and I hope you have found the Phonics evening and parents evenings to be useful.
The children have enjoyed our farm topic this week, particularly meeting some of the animals on Monday! We have been learning about the similarities and differences between the animals. We learned about their characteristics and where they live.
A few questions to ask your child:
Where do ducks live? (pond)
What noise does a donkey make? (hee haw)
What is a pigs nose called? (snout)
What feet do geese have? (webbed)
What does a cockerel have on its head? (a crown)
A text we focused on was Farmer Duck- you might have this book at home. At circle time we thought about whether we are helpful and kind like the duck or lazy like the farmer!
Have a wonderful half term and we are so excited to be learning all about transport when we come back! 🙂
Don’t forget to practice writing your name and sounds, reading your books and counting!
